The Heartland Museum of Military Vehicles in Lexington will host “Remembering 9-11: The 15th Anniversary” on Sunday, Sept. 11. On Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001, terrorists attacked the United States using four commercial aircraft. Several local volunteers including Earl Lindeman  have been involved in planning the program….
“And our program is timed around the four airliner crashes that claimed the lives of people that particular morning. Fifteen years ago it was on a Tuesday. This year it just happens to be on a Sunday morning. Our program formally starts at 8:00 o’clock (a.m.), but we’re going to have a prelude that starts at 7:46 which in local time was the exact time of the first impact. So if people was to come at 7:40 or 7:45, we will ring a ships’ bell at the exact time of each of the four impacts.”

The four attacks occurred over the course of 81 minutes, with the first attack at 7:46 a.m.  CT (8:46 ET) and the last at 9:07 a.m. CT (10:07 ET). The program will consist of volunteers from the Lexington Public School District who will present a 9-11 Remembrance Event. Lexington High School Principal Kyle Hoehner  will be the Master of Ceremonies. The Keynote Speaker will be Tim Heimer  Grand Island Fire Department Fire Operations and Training Division Chief who volunteered at Ground Zero in New York.
